Story: AN IN-TOWN NEIGHBORHOOD, ELIZABETH IS KNOWN FOR ITS SHADY TREE-LINED STREETS, CRAFTSMAN BUNGALOWS, AND ECLECTIC BLEND OF RETAIL, INSTITUTIONAL, AND RESIDENTIAL LAND USE. ELIZABETH VILLAGE IS A MULTI-FAMILY DEVELOPMENT JUST ONE MILE FROM CHARLOTTE'S BUSTLING CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT.
This site is uniquely bound to the north by a continuous sound wall along Independence Boulevard. With five buildings, the complex boasts a quality blend of stacked flats and park-under townhouse units with front door stoops.
The project incorporates materials and architectural expressions ranging from traditional craftsman elements to more contemporary expressions. A shady green space was incorporated in the center by preserving the large oak trees and a small, semi-public outdoor patio space with a sculptural water fountain also included.
